Chore reward charts are limited to just kids. Check out how we developed our own chore charts for husbands & wives or chore charts for mom & dad.
You go to work, you work hard, and you come home and instead of relaxing, you have more work to do! The work never seems to end! My husband and I have specific things around the house that we do on a weekly bases that we downright hate, put off or forget about.
- Evaluate your budget to see how much money you can put into your allowance category.
- When you figure it out make sure you keep it in mind as you assign values to your chores.
- Here is a free printable blank chart for your use, if you want to print and write in your chores.
- Here is sample of my chart.
- Decide how much stuff needs to be worth to motivate you to do it each day and assign that amount to the item.
- Include stuff on the chart that are health related that you put off such as, “Exercise 30 minutes”, “Drink an 8 oz glass of water”, or my biggy-“Floss”.
- Once you finish it, you can make it re-usable by printing the chart and sliding it in a clear plastic sleeve/report cover, laminating it or putting in a glass frame.
- Grab yourself a dry erase marker and your on your way.
- My husband and I hung it in our bathroom so that each night before we went to bed we could check off our items.
- We also use that room often and consistently so it was always there to remind us.
My Chart Hung in Bathroom
- Complete the items on your list whether they happen once a week, every other day or daily.
- It helps me to set a 30 minute timer and work for that period of time as fast as I can.
- Watching my favorite shows online while I fold, hang & iron helps me enjoy the chores more.
- At the end of the week, add up your earnings.
- Go to the bank and cash in.
- Outside of your money reward, your home will be cleaner and more put together.
- This system is based on setting one big reward for yourselves that you earn based on smaller goals.
- For example, my husband and I want to get a projector to watch movies and things on.
- We have set a goal that when we each loose 5 pounds, we will go get the projector.
- Other Examples:
- Walking a certain distance (add up your miles each day).
- Saving certain amounts of money.
- Eating a particular way for 2 weeks.
- Avoiding certain foods for a period of time.
- Finishing a project around the house.
- Make them short, obtainable goals so you don’t give up or loose interest.
- Make the prizes worth it, if it doesn’t motivate you, what’s the point?
